Calabar – There was pandemonium Tuesday morning in the Banking hall of Guarantee Trust Bank along Calabar Road in Calabar, Cross River State, when a fight broke out between a soldier and four mobile policemen inside the bank at about 11am.

It was a real fight as the lone soldier took on the police men with exchange of blows and fisticuffs. The policemen and the soldier sustained injuries. The uniform of the soldier was torn.

It could not be ascertained what the cause of the squabble was, but a canister of tear gas was shot inside the filled banking hall, leading to pandemonium as customers fled the burning sensation.

Soon after they were separated more armed mobile and regular policemen arrived the bank in trucks demanding for the soldier who was inside the bank.

A few moments later a deployment of soldiers in trucks also landed, leading to sporadic shooting into the air, as bystanders and passers-by scampered for safety.

After a while they all got inside the bank to sort themselves out, after which they got out and left in their different vehicles.
